The creative process, according to press notes, begins at "10PM on Sunday, Nov. 11 — the night before the show — when a group of six writers, six directors, 24 actors, two musical guests, and a production staff gather at the American Airlines Theatre. After each of the cast members share a costume, prop, their special skills and stage desires — each writer is tasked with composing a ten-minute play by 7 AM the following morning, when the directors return to read and select their piece. The casts will meet for the first time at 9 AM and, over the next 12 hours the plays are rehearsed and produced for a live presentation. At 8 PM, ink barely dry, the six new plays — interspersed with six musical acts — will be performed for a live audience."
The American Airlines Theatre is located at 227 W. 42nd St. Tickets are available at Smarttix.com or by calling (212) 868-4444.
